Columbia Women’s Sierra Summette III

There’s a reason that the Sierra Summette III is a crowd favorite; this waterproof, insulated winter boot is warm, cozy and supremely good-looking. The Techlite™ shell is not only flexible and protective, it’s also super lightweight to prevent fatigue. Inside, 200 grams of insulation wraps feet and toes in a toasty cocoon of warmth to keep you comfortable whether you’re helping the troops stack a snowman or getting out into the wilderness for some much deserved fresh air.

I purchased these boots for a last minute trip to the Rockies for Spring Break. I took them out in the snow and in freezing temperatures many times during our trip and was never disappointed. They are completely waterproof and very warm. Based on other reviews, I purchased a half size up. I am a size 7.5 and purchased a size 8. I wore regular no-show socks because wool socks caused the boot to fit too tight. My feet were never cold with regular light socks. I am so glad I purchased these. I highly recommend these boots!

This are great shoes, it keeps the feet warm. I wear size 8 in tennis shoes and i got 8.5 it fits fine but i wish i had picked size 9 instead to give some extra room. Otherwise they are nice shoes.

I thought these would keep my feet warm a lot better. They managed to get cold when out in climate for a period of time. The one thing I do like is they are waterproof.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered these boots a few weeks ago because of our cold winter in the Northeast. These boots will keep my feet warm and dry no matter how long I have to wait for the bus.

I was very worried about the size of the boots and if they were going to be comfortable. I'm a 6.5 and got a 7. They are perfect, nice and warm, great for snow and rain. Hard at first but two or three uses they feel extra comfy.
I would recommend this product.

Great look and feel. I have worn these boots in snow and slushy water. A great value and quick delivery. Tiny bit tight in shoe box but have already loosened. Would buy again.

I needed boots that are warm and waterproof; my work requires me to do a lot of walking. These boots are so comfortable and warm that I actually wear them with no socks. I read the reviews which helped me greatly. I ordered a 1/2 size up. I normally wear a 6 1/2 so i ordered a 7. They fit perfect. I am very happy with these boots ; I ordered another pair as a gift for my niece.
These are my second pair of Columbia boots. My first lasted me over 10 years..
Thank you

With the abundance of snow not running short in the Midwest this year, I found myself needing to buy a new pair of boots. My last boots (Lands End) I had for about 7-8 years. I was thinking about going with them again but my husband suggested that I try Columbia as he has a pair for snow mobiling. I was a little leery about ordering them off the website because when I read the reviews about how they ran a little on the small size. I downloaded the sizing chart and measured my feet. I typically wear a 7 1/2 so I ordered the 9 as suggested by the sizing chart. They fit perfectly! And not to mention with all the snow and below zero temperatures we've had, my feet have remained warm and dry, especially working in the city and having to walk from the train. I would definitely recommend this product and I probably wont' need to by another pair of boots again for at least another 10 years!
I would recommend this product.

I measured my feet on the online chart and came out at a size 7 even though I normally wear a 9. My feet are wide so I decided to buy a 9 just in case but when they arrived I couldn't even get my foot into them! Suffice to say - they fit NARROW. Although they appear to have room in the toe, they are very low on the bridge of the foot.
That said, they're clearly awesome boots - very sturdy and hard wearing, although completely inflexible in the sole.
I would recommend this product.

Upon receiving my boots, I immediately put them on and went out to play in the snow! I was concerned about the fit due to previous reviews, yet found that they fit perfectly. I don't wear thick socks and would have gone up 1/2 a size if I did. These boots are as described, light yet warm. Love the style also, very flattering.
I would recommend this product.

I read the reviews on these boots before I ordered mine and they all said that they run about a size bigger than you normally wear, so I ordered a size 9 (I'm normally a size 8). They fit perfectly. They look big when I'm looking down at them on my feet, but they fit perfectly. They are so warm and yet also light weight. I love that they don't tie. They just slip right on. You can adjust the tie at the top to make it tighter or looser though. I bought these in brown and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone... I have actually!
I would recommend this product.

Runs small, as the other reviews state, so I ordered a 1 1/2 sizes larger than I wear and they fit perfectly. I actually ordered two pair - one for me and one for my teen daughter. We both love them! We live in Michigan - it's been below zero several times this winter and the boots have kept us very warm, and we've even gone tubing in them. They are light, comfortable, and warm.
I would recommend this product.

I wish I would have listened to the reviews. These boots are the weirdest fit....they are so tight on the top of your foot. It seems like it is a flaw in the design. I was really disappointed. I was even more disappointed that I had to pay to have them shipped back. I will never order from Columbia online again.
I do not recommend this product.

I usually buy my snow boots from LL Bean, but decided to try something a little heavier duty with these boots. Pros: your feet will definitely not get wet, and the lace-up style is good for people with larger calves. Also, they're relatively attractive. Cons: these boots are heavy and look huge from the outside, and the toe box is very unyielding, so they're not very comfortable. Also, they run small - I ordered a size up to leave room for heavy socks, and can only wear them with thin socks unless I want to lose feeling in my toes. The rubber, while keeping your feet dry, will not keep them especially warm.
I do not recommend this product.

I returned these boots, then reordered. Returned because I could not even begin to squeeze my foot into the boot. I have slim ankles and I am a narrow foot, size 9. I was stopped right when I was to slide my foot in the curved shaft area. My reorder was for 10-1/2 versus the size 9 on the first order. I could finally squeeze my foot past the shaft, but then the footpad area was too big and when walking it slide up and down on my heel. Weirdest boot I have EVER tried on. So, size? Too small in shaft. Pls put in a sturdy deep zipper! I am going to return these as soon as I dig out of the snow!
I do not recommend this product.
